  • LOVE #8! Gotta have a goal to work towards!
  • Great No-Nonsense suggestions!
  • Great! We often think that we have to be perfect when we start... it's great to see that the most important thing is to start!
  • I love the idea of just showing up at the gym. Just do it. Go for it!
  • great article but i work overnight and i can't find a good time to exercise. When i come home go to bed , weak up at 1:30 , go pick up my daughter and before you know it the day is over .Any idea
  • I LOVE this article! I specially agree with "Just show up. 98% of life is showing up."
  • "You wouldn’t cancel an appointment, why would you cancel on yourself? Aren’t you important too?...NO, I'm not, and that's how I found SparkPeople.
    Put the pain in perspective. ...What’s the big deal? ...torn ligaments, sprains, and chronic joint problems that are leading from no-big-deal-pain to injury
    It’s never too late to be that healthy person you might have been. "...This statement does not make sense. Might have been can not be recovered into the present.

    OMG!! # 1 hit too close to home. I have been beating myself up for too long for allowing myself to become what I am. I am glad to see it in writing that I need to throw away the images I have of myself from highschool and start over and accept myself for what I am today.
  • I especially liked the "be better than you were". I can always compete against myself!
    Such a wonderful article =) makes me feel special again.
  • What an inspirational article. Thank you for this.
  • What a wonderful list to accomplish. I love the way she breaks it down. Each thing seems so achievable. I've saved it. I think I'll read it every week.
  • I LOVE this article! It's one I could reread daily for a while!
  • I can really relate to the walk/run in public. I had surgery 4 weeks ago and since then have been out with both of my crutches on the jogging path, and yesterday I was out with one crutch on the jogging path. Sure, I might look funny out there as a cripple, but I am out there anyways. I might not be fast, but who is with crutches and so soon after surgery?
    Great advice. I have just started some sessions with personal trainer, so that makes me keep appointments. She lets me go at my own pace.
    I find I can restrict calories by filling half my plate with vegetables. Didn't realise until recently how fattening fruit is!
    Love from Susie in the UK
